Have you ever wondered why some ministers move an average of every two years? Or why are more ministers getting out of full-time ministry than there are getting in to it? I’ve got a few ideas that might help answer those questions. Here are 10 things you could be doing that might make your minister want to quit.
1 – Never encourage him. Just expect him to know he’s doing a good job, there’s no real reason to tell him. Besides it may inflate his ego.
2 – Never pray for him. Don’t include him and his family in your daily prayers.
3 – Be critical. Being critical of the preacher and his family really won’t hurt anyone, including the preacher’s family.
4 – Never volunteer to help when he asks. Surely someone else can do it OR he can do it himself. Besides that’s what we pay him.
7 – Never expect him to take any time off. When he does make him feel guilty about it.
8 – Expect his wife and children to be perfect. You should always expect more from his family than other families, AND they’ll never make mistakes.9 – Expect him to work 80 hours a week.
10 – Make sure you see him as someone who is hired to do a job and not a co-worker in the ministry.
